in india, versus getting your question answered by someone in indiana which might take one call to get answered, that neutralizes the overall costs because of the difference in the wage rates. we're encouraging the administration to consider how to incense u.them to bring thos jobs back. >> are they good jobs? >> terrific jobs. our business that grown 80% in the last the two years since when he the good fortune of participating in the jobs forum. we found families want to stay in local communities. people want to have the flexibility to be able to work from their home, or be able to work when they have the opportunity to, working around their family's schedules. >> this is an at-home call center? people working at home? >> absolutely. a young child or sick parents, they need flexibility. what this opportunity offers them is the ability to construct thiv other work schedules and work how offer and when they choose and choose the different companies they provide service for. so we have folks that will work 80 or 90 hours a week and can earn in the high $80,000 a year. it's very lucrative
is trying to follow the examples set by governor dan yells in indiana and that is to sell or lease the turn bike. that's the super highways that that's the super highways that runs from the border to border. you also want to privatize the five state prisons. so far you've only got a bid i think on one of the state prisons and i don't know if you've had any real great offers on the turnpike. do you see those as real long-term solutions? >> well, first of all we could have sold more prisons but we're not going to sell for a bad price. secondly, we sold one and we did very well with that and in addition to that we privatized more of the operations of these prisons. and believe me, our director of corrections here in ohio is thrilled with where we are because i think you know that the cost of correction facilities is skyrocketting and we've been able to get ourselves in a position to be able to change that, to be able to first of all not only have the kind of reforms in the prisons like unit management but also what do they say, to bend the -- i forget the term they use but we've been able to s

on briefly. a comment from an indiana democratic representative andre carlson is getting a lot of attention. he said some in the tea party positive like to see blacks "hanging on a tree." other critics say the complexion of the tea party hardly reflects the diversity of this nation. how do you respond to those line of charges? >> first, i think andre carson picked the wrong week to quit sniffing glue. that's the most ridiculous statements i've heard in years. >> i'm not sure he's addicted to glue sniffing, sir. >> do you remember the movie "airport" starring lloyd bridges? >> i do. >> okay. well, i rest my case at that point. look, if you go a tea party event, there's more diversity at a tea party event than in the cbc. probably more diversity in a tea party event than congressman carson's office. you know, that's just the most ridiculous thing i've ever heard. i've never met anybody as a tea party event who's racist or expresses anything other than that. you know, the tea party lives by the words of martin luther king. we just people by the content of their character, not the color of thei

the model in indiana, leasing a state highway, and for both of you, do you think hired direct user fees are a more economically direct an efficient way of funding either extension or maintenance of roads and bridges? >> separating out roads from public transportation is an important first and getting more transparency and accuracy and honesty in budgeting. government accounting, that is helpful. i am an advocate of phasing out most if not all of the federal gasoline tax and allowing states to take those resources and spend them, because you have a hard time telling people who will spend it on roads if they see a guy doing state money, siphon off the subways and the bike paths and what not. they do not know what they can believe and what happened to the dollar they thought they were paying for roads. to the extent you can turn those cards face up and say this is what we're spending on road and public transit, subway system, and states you will never visit, and here is what you're doing and here's leisured -- not in your neighborhood. it is very helpful. >> direct user fees meaning tolls
of the committee, the gentleman from indiana, mr. rokita. mr. rokita: thank you and i thank the gentleman for yielding some time. i rise to give my strong support to this measure. this straightforward legislation before us today prohibits the national labor relations board from dictating what private businesses can and cannot locate jobs in america. mr. speaker, let me say that again. this straightforward legislation before us today prohibits the nlrb from dictating where private businesses can and cannot locate jobs in the united states. it's almost a bizarre situation that we're in. an american company wants to provide american jobs in america and we have an agency of this administration trying to prohibit that. because of recent overreach by the nlrb we unfortunately need to have this legislation, mr. speaker. businesses who want to hire americans in america ought to be able to do so. for americans wondering why jobs are going overseas, it's because there are too many regulations and too many bizarre regulations that are forcing companies out of this country. just so they can stay in b
of african-americans just to win that state. i think that state comes off the board. indiana comes off the board. you have to have people with the same fervor that you had beforehand so those numbers are correct. so james talked about firing some people. i made a point a couple weeks ago in my cnn column that no one fears the president. it is a point about conviction as well. the base wants to know that you're going to fight as hard as you can, and you cannot give the impression that hey, i'm mr. bipartisan and let's work this thing out. folks want to see you go to battle, even if it means losing a good fight. >> james, here's a number that's hard to change. i want to show our viewers, president obama, george w. bush, and bill clinton at this point of their presidency. obviously, bill clinton won a second term. george w. bush won a second term. approval rating barack obama 43, george w. bush 52, bill clinton 44. here's where i think it matters. barack obama 55% disapproval. president bush was at 43. president clinton was at 44. when a majority disapproves, it gets hard heading into a p
before the deadly stage collapse at the indiana state fair, feinberg previously handled funds for the victims of the 9/11 attacks and also the bp spill victims. nine people died and four dozen people were injured there. >>> and now a court testimony and how it is used in court is being following carefully across the country. the new jersey supreme court says that eyewitness invtestimo is not reliable. joining me now is nationally syndicated talk radio show host michael smerconish. good to see you. >> thank you. >> we usually have you in one of the boxes, so it is good to see you in studio. how significant is this decision? >> significant and interesting because brandon garrett is a law professor at uva and he did something interesting he looked at the first 200 people who were released from jail because the dna said, they didn't do it, and he wanted to find out the common denominator if any and why were they convicted in the first go around and he found out there were bad eyewitnesses predicated on lineup or misidentification, and then delved into the rules of what are being f
and there for the taking for governor christie. governor christie appeared yesterday with indiana republican governor mitch daniels at ryding university. both governors disappointed their fans when they announced earlier this year they definitely will not run for president. christie offered his thoughts on why republicans still want him to run. >> i think what the country is thirsty for more than anything else right now is someone of stature and credibility to look them in the eye and tell them that. and say, here's what i want us to go to deal with this crisis. and the fact that nobody, yet, who's running for president, in my view, has done that effectively is why you continue to hear people ask daniels if he'll reconsider and ask me if i'll reconsider. >> joining me now, "washington post" columnist and msnbc analyst, eugene robinson. thanks for joining me tonight, gene. >> great to be here, lawrence. >> gene, as you know, opinions are in about this republican debate. the "new york post" today on perry says awful, just awful. after the first half hour he seemed unable to speak a coherent sentence even whe
i.d. texas, kansas, georgia, south carolina, tennessee, indiana, and wisconsin as well. want to bring in michael. executive director for the brennan center for justice at new york center of law and fo former speech writer for president clinton. thank you for joining me. you have supporters of voter i.d. laws saying they are needed to prevent voter fraud at the polls but others say voter i.d. laws will suppress turnout since 12% of eligible voters don't have a photo i.d. how do you strike the right balance? >> that's the thing. as you say, everybody who is eligible to vote should be able to vote and only those people who are eligible to vote should be eligible to vote but we shouldn't erect barriers that keep people with the right to vote from voting. unfortunately this really in many ways unprecedented new wave of laws in the states will likely do that to many, many people. as you said, about 11% of people simply even though they are eligible to vote do not have government issued i.d. >> let's talk about that. we found that number to be -- we found it usually high. what do we
in northern indiana where girls were allegedly abused at a boarding school run by a fundamentist baptist. >> reporter: we've had a lot of people claim they were physically and mentally abused at your house. >> i would prefer not to say. >> reporter: let's introduce you to susan, who is now 45 but spent 2 1/2 years there starting when she was 15. >> there would be gardening and crafts and singing and just a chance to heal. >> reporter: that's what your parents thought the school was going to be. >> that's right. >> reporter: was it in any way correct? >> no, no. and i knew that the minute the door shut behind me. >>> we'll have those stories and more and tonight's "ridiculist" at this top of the hour, candy. >> thanks, anderson. >>> home prices are one of the biggest drags on the u.s. economy. next up, will things ever get better? every time a local business opens its doors or creates another laptop bag or hires another employee, it's not just good for business -- it's good for the entire community. at bank of america, we know the impact that local businesses have on communities, so we're
's got a lot of flexibility there. he could lose florida. he could lose indiana. don't think people know that's in play. he could lose north carolina, virginia. he'd still get past 270 electoral votes. >> where are the areas in florida where you think the president could gain ground? certainly in the polling we were looking at in florida about rick perry, for example, and the social security issues, it looks like the president -- certainly if rick perry's the nominee would be able to gain ground on the social security issue in florida. is there anything else he could do there? >> you know, elections in florida really are won in the middle. and it's the i-4 corridor from st. petersburg to daytona, which is really the swing voter area of florida. and that's really where obama's in trouble. those approval ratings among independent and swing voters are just as bad as they are among overall. so he's got a lot of work to do in that range. there's sort of a myth from 2008 that he won with a really hyped-up base and an excited base. he really won because he won independents. he won independents
a candidate. they managed to find one in indiana to compete against the senior senator dig lck lugar wh facing a challenger, the state treasurier, richardrichard. he says lugar is not conservative enough. let's listen. >> dick lugar is not the dick lugar of 35 years ago. if he once got to get bob on the stream court i wouldn't have be here today. he's not the same person. you know, mr. lugar, as i said, is not a bad person, but he's out of sync with the times. >> so this is one of the first campaign ads, but this guy doesn't have much of a chance, does he? ing. >> you know, i want to answer that very carefully because, again, a year ago we looked to a lot of people across the country, a lot of incumbent republicans, long-term incumbent republicans going up against no-name challengers who have been tempted to say they had no chance. look. it's one thing to say a year ago peek were saying who is marco rubio, charlie crist. he's the governor of florida. he easily beat charlie crist. i want to say when we hear the ad challenging lugar, there's still concern beyond whether you're conservative enoug
